Over 100 cuts and still going. The vice is better that similar saws. Decently clean and accurate cuts. Was able to cut 6"x1/2" plate. The base can flex if a piece is heavy, but it is more solid than other bases I have looked at. Works great for a smaller portable metal band saw. Worth the money.

    I like that it feels and works like a quality saw for the money. I really needed the mitering ability and the compact size. I've worked in wood/metal and body shops and I'm a process engineer. I know the importance of buying a tool that fits the job and budget and this saw fits just that. I build custom furniture. Steel framed tables mostly. Square mild steel tubing usually under 4". This saw is the safest, fastest and most productive option I could think of. Sure I could buy a bigger production saw but it would cost double and take up valuable floor space. I've been using the saw for three weeks now and built three tables(about 15-20 cuts per table) it has worked flawlessly. If have given 5 stars but the first saw I received did not work. I called WEN and they were very helpful and addressed my problem immediately. They said I could have a part shipped if I could identify what it was. I pulled it apart to access the issue and see if a small part could be sent instead of entire saw. The transmission was connected to the moter without aligning one of the bearings. In the end I decided on just having them ship a new saw which arrived within days. Quality control is always a concern in a factory. My thoughts are this. It's a good solid quality tool, there can always be a lemon, but since WEN did the best possible service I could have expected I will continue to buy some of their products. I plan on buying a wood band saw and a drill press in the near future.

    Its okay for what you pay for it, but its not for someone who's just a little bit above average use of this type of saw. Pivit joints will wear out soon. The table is stamped steel instead of cast aluminum. Before I got started with it, I could yell it just wouldn't be enough for my needs. A minimal hobbyist could be ok but thats it in my opinion. Home Depot was great both ends of the sale and return. Sorry it didn't work out.

    It's not amazing, just fair quality. It cuts are not true making it hard to use for fabrication work. For the price it's not overly terrible but not much better than cheaper imports. Reset breaker fell off.

    The saw has a lot of potential, but has some issues with cutting straight, blade tracking, base should be built sturdier, finding replacement blades is difficult, and a few other inconveniences.

    The saw came completely assembled and in working order. Minor adjustments to blade tracking were necessary to get square cuts. Don’t trust the angle gauge on saw. One needs to set square or angle with appropriate gauge. No tracking adjustment for blade and poor instructions.

    First one I bought something was wrong in the gear box and it locked up on me and burnt the motor out. Returned to store no questions asked, new one was ordered and it works great! I saw itself is super , cuts good and straight right out of the box, unfortunately something was wrong with the first one, so 4 stars .

    This is a very safe and easy to care for metal cutting medium small band saw for medium duty work. It cuts very precisely to accuracy of 1/16". The dual switches, a main power with blue LED power indicator lamp, and large and strong vise clamp for the metal stock being cut are the safety features and makes the saw easy to use. You need to provide cutting oil for it like Mobil 766 cutting oil and dispenser bottle for it. It helps keep the band blade lubricated and cooler. The motor has a variable speed controller to adjusts the speed to keep the blade cutting at a pace that will not wear out the blade prematurely and helps it lasts longer. The saw lacks a chip and oil tray underneath. Brush and paper towels are needed to keep the saw clean. Some operators found the two clicks trigger on and off switch annoying. Why did I gave it excellent rating? The angle locking adjustment lever knob is in the way of the stock being cut. One has to be careful to where the stock, blade, and vise clamp and vise screw lever knob are at before turning on the saw for the cut. The blue LED power on lamp is too dim for bright sun light. An optional laser attachment to show where the blade will cut at would be handy. I liked this saw and highly recommended with its shortcomings. I have used it so many times for angle steel with bolt holes on them, just out of the box. Ordering via the web at Home Depot was easy. You have the option of delivery to a store near you for pick up or delivered to your door step. There was some wait and verification for at store pick up. The staff was helpful. The saw weighs about 45 pounds and will needs some table top space. The cord is a 120 V AC 60 Hz with plenty of length about 5 to 6 feet. The instructions are easy to follow. I used the saw right out of the box.

    Unit looks good does not perform for me as expected. Main problem is the 12 TPI blade that comes with the unit. This grabs too much metal at one time and causes the cut in even a 2in by 2in by1/8 tubing to be off square. The blade adjusting knob broke off the second time I adjusted it. I spent a lot of time making mine operate that most users would not do. Cuts better now but would not buy again.

    For the price this product works very well. It does like the refinements of more expensive machine, Blade guide adjustment knob and angle adjustment knobs are clumsy. But for non-production metal cutting, this will work very well. Cuts mild steel and alum. with no issues. Blade size in non-standard and Home-depot does not stock it that I see.

    Great Saw. Small, portable, but cuts fairly quickly and very cleanly. My only complaint is you need to hold the trigger to run the saw instead of starting it and walking away like some of the larger tilting band saws. You can’t do something else while this is cutting. Cuts great. Unusual blade size.
